Boulders Beach

Boulders Beach is a beach with penguins being the only one in Cape Town, South Africa. The colony arose in 1982 only, but now it has several thousands species. In addition, there are many huge boulders on the beach, thus looking like Seychelles. There are few coastal areas, where it is possible to swim. Penguins usually gather on the main beach, which is closed for tourists. You can only walk along the wooden pathway (admission fee US$10) to the observation deck. However, sometimes occasional penguins may enter free beach area. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
